It was one of my childhood goals and will be my goal till my graduation day. Graduating high school is very important to me in life. Graduating high school means I can move onto life and go to college or do what I wanted after which is going to be a cosmetologist. I believe that I can push myself into finishing, I know I can.

That’s why I’m trying to do as much school as I possibly can before he is finally here. I think that graduating is very important to me. It always has been but it’s more important to me than it ever has. I say this because it will take me somewhere after high school. It might even take me to college like I would want to. The reason I say this is because I want to go to college and be a cosmetologist. Being a cosmetologist would be better for my family and I would have a good enough job to support my family. Cosmetology also, will be better because it’s not that much schooling. It’s about maybe 8 months. That is way better than having to go to school for two years because than it would be more difficult for me to have time with my son and having to find him a babysitter. Having two responsibilities requires having a good job to support us all. This will just be a whole lot better so I won’t have to struggle with not having money to buy diapers or stuff that either of us need. It will all just be a better outcome for us and will be better for us. So, I believe that I can finish high school and get my
